History/Info wanted ???

A while back I bought a nice set of SPI angle blocks/plates from 1 to 30 degrees. Unlike some of their latest(current ) offerings. These have Made in USA lazered on them. Any here with a bit of history in them. I'd like to find out who made them for SPI? Brown & Sharpe, Suburban, Anton machine or ot...

Re: Power HACKSAW question

That seems like common sense to me, but ...
I still don't understand what that cylinder/shaft does.
Does it just stabilize the blade assembly as it comes down?

Re: Power HACKSAW question

Well the saw arrived a couple weeks ago. So here's some pics: ... the motor wouldn't start up, but I knew that. Turned out to be a wire not connected at the motor. Rewired the motor and switch and motor kicked in just fine. The motor is a Canadian made Tamper with factory Shima paint on it. It seems...

Re: The ultimate 3-in-1 machine

If you go to the lathes.uk site, click archive @ top of page. Combination machines are half way down the 3rd column. Take a look at the Adcock & Shipley page. That IS the ultimate 3 in 1 machine. As for the making of 1 or a reproduction you might look at the Arbor page while you are there. That is a...

Re: Power HACKSAW question

At the beginning of this week, one of my work mates left
these on my shelf for me.
They're 17 inches 10 tpi. I should be able to cut them down
and put a new pin hole for 14 or 16 inches?

Re: Power HACKSAW question

Yes. It has blade lift on the return stroke. If you go back to link and look at the second last pic the cam is on the end of the shaft almost straight up from the red knob near the floor. I found a youtube video of a Jet saw thats exactly like this one and it shows the machine running with a close u...

Re: Power HACKSAW question

Well I just pulled the trigger on a saw. The small Craftsman/Atlas saws go for like 350-400 on Ebay and most won't ship they're already on a stand with motor. One was 350.00-no motor and 160.00 shipping. Thats insane. I found this:https://www.kijiji.ca/v-power-tool/mississauga-peel-region/vintage-po...

Re: Power HACKSAW question

Thanks for all the input.
In the reading/research I've been doing, I've read some post
saying a power hacksaw can cut harder materials than a bandsaw.
eg.railroad ties. Any input on this.

Power HACKSAW question

Have been entertaining the idea of picking up a small power hacksaw.
I've noticed that some of the smaller 12 inch models had a blade
lift feature and some not. My question is: not having blade lift
does that cause quicker blade wear?

Colchester Chipmaster-Question

Whats the best way to set up A Chipmaster?
Just sit it down on the floor? Or are there newer replacement for the mounting pads that came with the lathe when new?

Re: Mounting an INVERTER

Well I wired up the inverter and used a longer umbilical from motor to inverter just as a test precaution. Everything works fine. The motor does not exhibit external electo-magnetic forces. With the inverter in the bracket position as in the pics the inverter shows no signs of any influence or fluct...

Re: Mounting an INVERTER

I double checked the manual that came with the VFD to see if I missed something. The only cautions are not to put near something with electo magnetic feilds. It gave 2 examples: solder machines and power machines. I take it that power machine means a transformer. On an induction motor( AC 1 or 3 ph)...
